October 27th marks the day that Danny O’Dwyer in collaboration with Psyonix officially announced a new documentary about Rocket League. The video producer of it is none other than Danny O’Dwyer, a notable gamer, former GameSpot employee, and frequent guest on the Co-optional Podcast. This documentary proves to be an interesting project for him.
About Danny O’Dwyer
Impressively, Danny’s interest in Rocket League doesn’t come as a shock to many. He is an avid fan of racing, a fact that can be determined from tweets like this:
Since the creation of Noclip, the first project is the epic battle car game, Rocket League. This new venture gives him the opportunity to show off his love and passion for capturing a raw vision into the gaming industry, skills he’s learned over the years. In the early days, he began as a producer for a couple of projects, leaping into both game and web development, and finally moved on to games journalism – his current profession.
Amongst his accolades, he has been a guest on the Co-Optional Podcast and Kinda Funny Games. He is most notable for being a contributor on GameSpot but left the gig in September of this year. Since O’Dwyer is an avid gamer with proven stripes, it will be exciting to see what comes out of this new venture. Perhaps it is a biased thought but the Rocket League documentary is a fantastic place to start.

His colleague is Jeremy Jayne who writes the music for the project, also an ex-video producer of GameSpot.
